"Okay so tell me if this is odd...one of my coworkers puts salt in her coffee. She will put like 5 or 6 of those small packets of salt in a small cup of very strong black coffee and nothing else. She says it cuts the bitterness out...
I've never seen anybody do that before and I think its just disgusting and very odd but maybe I'm wrong..maybe more people do it and I'm just not aware of it." - Audrey
We are attempting this in the office. For science.
My dad used to do that when we went camping, but I haven't thought about it in years. I might just try a little sea salt in the coffee maker as it brews and see how it tastes!
I do know that a few sprinkles of sea salt on top of chocolate brownies just before putting them in the oven certainly makes a big difference in the brownies!!
Isn't that sometimes called Navy brew, or something similar? I recall reading about that someplace.
Alton Brown adds a dash of salt in an episode of Good Eats where he makes French pressed coffee. I've tried it, just a pinch, and it definitely helps with the flavor.
It's not that odd, honestly. I don't know about putting it directly in the coffee, but I generally add a pinch of salt to my coffee grounds while brewing–it DEFINITELY cuts some bitterness out of the coffee. Try it!
